Deep in the darkest vaults of South London, The WitchDoktors have been honing their SuperPunkRock sound and shows, drawing on their 70s punk upbringing (Ramones, Clash, Pistols, Damned etc) and adding a good ol’ full measure of trashy rock’n’roll-a-billy, a dash of 60s Psyche-Out Garage, a bitter twist of cuntry and whizzing it all up with some godamming loud geetars our special brand of thunderous drums!
After 4 albums, a fistfull of singles plus hundreds of shows with like minded souls e.g. The Damned, The Revillos, The Fleshtones, Woggles, Phantom Surfers, The Saints, ? and the Mysterions, Man or Astroman?, Dogs D’Amour, Vince Ray and more recently The Polecats, The Germs, Macavity’s Cat, they’re fired up on high octane again and are out there gigging to promote their new album $3 Hooker (distribution to retail stores by those nice people at www.fortedistribution.co.uk).
‘$3 Hooker’ is also available for download NOW from iTunes, e-music, Napster and Amazon along with their ‘ Greatest Hits(!) album Razor Cuts & Red Hot Needles. Go on, getcha ‘pod’ Doktored!
Wanna feel like The WitchDoktors? Then getchersome comic books, catch some horror flicks, drink a bar dry, sling on some inkwork, fire up the hotrod and thank your lucky stars that you can relax in the safety of your own paranoia – You KNOW it makes sense!
